Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A home within a home … is there any living arrangement that holds more appeal? Carving out in-law (or other) quarters from an existing home is a win-win any way you look at it — financially, practically, and emotionally. The audience for this book is broad — from the baby boomer caring for elderly parents, or returning kids, to the homeowner who is simply in search of a smart way to help pay the mortgage. It puts a wide range of options out there, including attic conversions, bump-out additions, and even freestanding structures. This book covers every eventuality involved in creating a secondary living space in your home or on your property — from planning and soundproofing to safety and security, even how to deal with damp basements.

Synopsis:

One of the greatest collections of home renovation brainpower has been completely revised and updated with all new color photography and content. More than 1,000 photos are included in this "bible" of renovation.

The "bible" of home renovators for over 25 years, "Renovation" has now been completely revised and updated with all new color photography.

I also have the 1st edition, which is a excellent reference. Renovation 3RD, however, far surpasses its previous editions. If you do, or just aspire to do, any kind of upgrade, repair, remodeling work on your home, this is the first reference you'll want to turn to.
Well laid out and organized. Every subject covered is done so thoroughly and thoughtfully; anyone could jump right in to a project utilizing this reference.
